Have you seen these things?
I was nearly devoured by the alligatoresque lower cutaway of this Ibanez RG2011SC as I tried out a Parker Dragonfly at Funky Munky Music. Why bother with this design, you ask? According to the Ibanez site:
The new Limited Edition Ibanez RG2011SCBK has a 30-fret neck that allows metal shredders to reach high and beyond other guitars.
Ahh, ok. Shades of the Uli Jon Roth Sky Guitar, I suppose.
